Maggi K. from Vivaah Celebrations had the pleasure of having a candid discussion with Bianca and learning more about her opinions and insights into the her industry.
1) When did you step into the world of beauty?
I stepped into the entertainment industry in 1999. A brief stint at modelling wherein I shot for TV commercials and later a VJ with Channel [V] For 3 years . Thereafter I commenced my make-up career at the “India Couture Week” for the Manish Malhotra and Shahab Duraazi collection in 2010.
2) What inspired you to pursue a career as a Makeup Artist?
It was my late dad who saw potential in me. He found that I lost my way more than once into make up stores and loved make up. It was him who put the idea of learning make up Internationally. He funded my first make up kit and course and that was the beginning. He had mentioned and told me that one day I will work on famous faces like Priyanka Chopra. One week after he passed away, I got a call for Priyanka Chopra’s make up.
2) Having beautified brides around the world, how do you connect with so many personalities?
After my modelling stint and right before becoming a make up artist, my wanderlust also lead me to becoming a flight attendant. I would also attribute my instant personal connections with brides to this job that taught me wonderful client communication skills. I am able to anticipate what a client would require way before she even tells me about it.
3) How do you keep evolving to keep your audiences engaged on social media ?
I grow my page organically. I hate using filters and I love posting pictures clicked by me on my iPhone. I want my prospective brides to see things as they are, I love capturing moments of when I travel, the process of make up behind the scenes and the entire look thereafter. I am also a huge make up aficionado and love posting my new buys in my kit as well as reviews of how I like it !
4) How do you make a bride feel beautiful on her big day ?
After several zoom calls I understand the personality of the bride. Hence that makes my life a whole load easier. Most brides are always stressed or tired due to back to back events. I love playing music whilst I work and this calms them down. We chat about random things and I keep the atmosphere light. We take a few pictures post her make up and when she sees herself in the mirror and in her pictures she feels so beautiful & confident enough to take on the evening ahead.
5) What do you plan on achieving in the next few years of your career ?
I already own a beauty brand and want to make it bigger. I enjoy my bridal work very much and our USP is doing a very skin finish look. I want to ensure that by word of mouth with great reviews, those who love a natural, subtle, elegant and timeless look on their wedding day reach out to us! I am a very passionate Artist and work from the heart and ensure that my bride looks and feels her Best !
